Flynn, a charming Irish surname, is still used only quietly, despite its easygoing, casual cowboy charm, unlike Finn which is a star of this genre. Flynn was the choice of Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr for their baby boy, and is also the middle name -- used as his first -- of a son of Miranda's fellow supermodel Elle Macpherson, of Gary Oldman's son Gulliver and Marley Shelton's daughter West.
Flynn Rider (born Eugene Fitzherbert) is the dashing animated hero of the Disney film "Tangled." The name was long associated with the swashbuckling Errol Flynn, inspiration of the phrase "in like Flynn."
Flynn entered the US Top 1000 in 2011, and is a Top 100 choice in Australia and New Zealand.
